What about disabled or visually impaired guests?

Regretfully our Camp Baboon cabins do not have disability access. Here at Wild Place Project we have tried to keep our paths and woodland walks as natural as possible. Some areas are not accessible to wheelchairs. We will do everything we can to help accommodate wherever possible, so please call us on 0117 428 5600 to discuss potential options. Please view our full accessibility statement below:

Be prepared for all weather.
The Camp Baboon experience is informal and relaxed, so there is no need to dress up. We would recommend wearing comfortable and warm clothing, suitable for the forecasted weather. It can become very cold at Wild Place Project late at night, particularly in the winter months, so a warm coat, raincoat or umbrella and lots of layers are advised. There is also a evening tour on foot through the park after dinner – we would recommend wearing comfortable walking boots, wellies or sensible shoes for this as it may be dark. We will supply you with a torch for the walk so please do not bring your own.


Is there a licensed bar?
You can purchase soft drinks, wine, beers and other alcoholic beverages at dinner. We therefore ask that you do not bring your own alcohol. Cash, credit and debit cards are accepted.


If you have any other questions please call us on 0117 428 5600 or email us at info@wildplace.org.uk.
